The Stand (Movie Tie-in Edition)
Books | Fiction / Thrillers / Suspense
#1 BESTSELLER • The apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and tangled in an elemental struggle between good and evil remains as riveting—and eerily plausible—as when it was first published. • The tie-in edition of the nine-part CBS All Access series starring Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgard, and James Marsden.A patient escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out 99 percent of the world’s population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge—Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious “Dark Man,” who delights in chaos and violence. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between them—and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.

"This book beautifully defines how humanity can walk that very thin line between good and evil. The title makes no sense until the last few chapters when the literal stand is made by the main “good” characters. How God requires a sacrifice for goodness to prevail and how when you look at the bigger picture it really makes sense. How evil will always exist no matter how it is defeated the last time. Really enjoyed how King pulled me in with good vs evil, dreams and fate. Wonderful read. "
"My favorite king book. Really entertaining even though its so long."
